UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

What you will find here is water has leaked into the base of the dishwasher and activated the flood switch.

What you need to do is pull the dishwasher out and lean it 45 degs backwards and this will allow the water to drain out from the base. So you will need a towel for that part.

Once the water is out the flood switch will reset itself and this will stop the pump from running all the time.

Then retry it and fingers crossed this is just a one off that caused it.
But if it does it again then theres a leak under there which you need to find and fix. For this you need to remove both side panels and then you can see the workings under there and check for any loose hoses.

Try that and see how it goes from there and let me know.

Done that and there was no leak I have tried to find a high level switch but can't find it

Ok so when you turn it on is the pump running all the time?

Or does it start to fill with water and then the tap light comes on?

The drain pump runs but no water comes in I have taken in inline filter out and cleaned it
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok if the drain pump is running all the time but theres no water in the base of the dishwasher then its possibley the either the flood swith itself or the control unit at fault here.

What you can try is lie the dishwasher in its back and see if it has a removeable base tray. If so then remove it and check the flood switch to see if its stuck.

But if the flood switch is fine then its looking like it may be a faulty control board causing this fault im afraid. You need to access the control board and see if theres signs of burning on there.
